Live export and NSW

NSW is not directly involved in the bulk live export trade - there is no export of live animals through NSW sea ports. Live exports fall under Commonwealth legislation administered by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service.

The Australian Government is undertaking a number of actions to ensure animal welfare standards are met and to secure a long-term and sustainable future for the live animal export industry.

More information about these actions is available from the Australian Government’s Action on Live Export website.
